Inflammatory Conditions

Our Inflammatory Conditions Care Value ProgramSM will manage this class at the indication level, helping to increase competition and control costs while ensuring patients receive specialized care exclusively from the Accredo® specialty pharmacy. As part of this program, Express Scripts is providing a savings guarantee, refunding participating plan sponsors up to $6,000 if a patient discontinues any preferred anti-inflammatory medication within the first 90 days. Additionally, this program offers assistance and education for patients through our Inflammatory Conditions Therapeutic Resource CenterSM, where patients achieve better outcomes and 8% higher adherence to therapy.

This program is part of Express Scripts SafeGuardRxSM suite of solutions that commit to ensuring patient access and care while protecting plan interests.
